After his high-profile years as a New York Yankee, Roger Maris closed out his twelve-year Major League career as the starting right fielder on two St. Louis Cardinals World Series teams.The 1967-68 H&B “O16” model bat presented here dates from those last two championship seasons. Uncracked, it measures 35” in length, weighs 33.1 ounces, and exhibits outstanding use with a small chip to the knob, checking, cleat and ball marks, and green bat rack streaks. Furthermore, Rog has placed his initials on the knob in a familiar interlocking format. Originally personalized to an adoring fan, the previous owners name was professionally removed and the barrel of the bat reads “Best Wishes, Roger Maris,” in vintage black marker. Maris has always held a special place in the hearts of baseball fans and collectors alike, most likely the result of his glory years in the Bronx, yeoman work ethic, personal constitution, and early expiration. While his unsigned game bats and unused signed bats are both highly coveted by collectors, the pinnacle for bat collectors has always been the vintage signed Maris gamer. Comes with PSA GU 8 LOA.
